Tauck is a premium tour operator that offers luxury small ship cruising to Europe, South America and Antarctica. With a hand-picked fleet boasting eco-friendly marine technologies and meticulous standards of comfort and quality, Tauck gives travelers uncommon access to some of the world’s most fascinating waterways aboard yachts and expeditionary-style ships. You can meet polar penguins face to face in the Antarctic Archipelago, sample the healing waters of a blue geo-thermal lagoon in Iceland, or visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites along the Dalmatian Coast.
Tauck Small Ship Cruising Offers Uncommon Access.
Tauck’s small ships go where larger vessels can’t. With Tauck you get close-up vantage points of ecological wonders that are rarely experienced on larger cruise ships. Explore secluded islands of the Galapagos or swim in hidden harbors and colorful coves of the Greek Islands that are inaccessible to most visitors.
Cultural experiences are an important part of any travel. Tauck orchestrates all the details of shore excursions so that you get to truly connect with people, places and cultural traditions ashore and many excursions are exclusive to Tauck gusts only. You might visit a Peruvian horse ranch, have an early-opening visit to the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg or enjoy a private performance by local folklore artists in Turkey. Dining ashore is included, so you can get a genuine taste of the regional cuisine.
Tauck Small Ship Cruising is All-Inclusive.
Tauck Small Ship Cruising includes virtually every cruise and land expense for a luxury experience – ship and hotel accommodations, most meals, guided sightseeing and cultural entertainment. Shore excursions led by Tauck lecturers and naturalists are included, as well as gratuities to all Tauck staff, ship’s crew and local guides. Although airfare is not included, airport transfers to ship or hotel, along with luggage handling, port charges and taxes are all built in.
Tauck’s Small Ships have an Intimate, Club-like Atmosphere.
Because Tauck’s small ships have fewer guests, you get more personal attention from captain and crew. There are no lines and the ambiance is much like a fashionable club. A daily cocktail hour is a time to meet and mingle and dining is open seating. Soft drinks are available all day and wine and beer are available with lunch and dinner. You can visit the bridge, swim off the stern or take a zodiac to shore. Staterooms are well-appointed and spacious with every comfort of home.
